|Subject: Re: Into New York from Newark Airport|
Hi Sue and Ziners,
Definitely THE best way to get to the heart of NYC from EWR is the AirTrain which is right at the airport and will take you to Penn station in Manhattan in under 20 minutes! Unless it's in the middle of the night, there's a train leaving every 15 minutes. Over 3,000 people a day now ride that train. Just hop on the monorail at the airport and it will take you to the actual train station at the Newark airport, then hop on the AirTrain and voila, you're there. Cab drivers hate it. 8^)
